I miss The Strand so much it hurts. Sigh.

Collective

My Flickr photostream has outgrown its original structure of sets and groups.

My iTunes library is a metadata trainwreck.

My document management schema is a hodgepodge of notes about naming conventions, redundant backups, and the six local volumes that contain the entire mess, all scribbled in a battered Moleskine.

And my books? Oy, the books. Probably 700 volumes in my office alone, neatly shelved but not organized in the least1.

The list goes on and on. If you know me personally, you have a good idea of how much nerd-rage this situation produces inside me.

It looks like 2009 is going to be The Year of Getting My Collective Media Shit Together.

  1. Though meticulously cataloged.
